Well, guys, what a long, lovely (and occasionally strange) trip it’s been these past seven days of New York Fashion Week; forget rose-tinted glasses, we've been navigating the shows through various red lip hues from our friends at Giorgio Armani. And now, drumroll please, the results are in! Our faves rose to the (creamy, matte, featherlight) top of the heap. For Alessandra, it's a tie between #201’s velvety burgundy and #503's pop of warm fuschia; for Emily, the true-red eye-grabber of #400, and for Nick (our dark horse in the game), that'd be the punchy brick-toned #402. Above all, we'd like to think that what we've really learned is how truly clutch a bold lip is (Snowmaggedon be damned), and how utterly look-making a swipe of red can be in a pinch. Thankfully, to our relief and yours, that pinch is over (at least in New York): fashion week is taking off for London, Paris, and Milan, and we've got a surprise for you! Three surprises! Click the link below for a chance to win one of three full sets of the Armani Lip Maestro range (that means you get to mix and match to your heart's content). Be bold, be colorful, get lippy. We promise, you won't regret it. But if you still need that extra push, listen to Melissa Coker's sage advice, and "just do it!"
